A Newport man has been sentenced to three years after officers found thousands of pounds worth of class A drugs.
Jerome Winter, aged 20, was sentenced at Newport Crown Court on 24 August for possession with intent to supply class A drugs - heroin and crack cocaine.
He pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing and was sentenced to serve three years in a young offenders institution.
Winter was arrested following a warrant which was carried out at his home address in Newport.
During the search, officers located a quantity of heroin and crack cocaine, which had an estimated street value of £2,700.
More than £2,000 in cash was also found at the property.
PC Adam Griffiths, officer in the case, said: “I welcome the sentence imposed on Winter which sends a message to those involved in the supply of drugs within our communities that Gwent Police will not tolerate them profiting off the suffering and misery of others. We will continue to take action to bring offenders to justice to keep our communities safe.
